• April 2019: New Governors Take the Long View in Addressing Early Childhood Development

    This month, NASHP features its blog, New Governors Take the Long View in Addressing Early Childhood Development. This year a growing number of governors are promoting investments in the future health of their states by focusing resources on their youngest citizens today. This investment to help young children become healthy and productive adults can yield rewards for a state. Studies show that every $1 invested in early childhood programs generates a $2 to $4 return. Learn how California and Ohio governors are investing in healthy child development.
